Start Para-Swimming Initiative- Funding Available

Start Para-Swimming is the new model which will help provide a seamless pathway from Learn to Swim into your clubs entry point. The initiative is focused on identifying and developing those with an eligible impairment (further details found in the information pack) at stage 4 of the learn to swim framework. Start Para-Swimming is about establishing or using existing pool time to deliver weekly sessions to enhance and develop their skills.

There is a maximum grant of £500 to your club to become a Start Para-Swimming centre. Further details of what can be funded are in the Expression of Interest form (EoI). Swim England has developed resources to help deliver Start Para-Swimming, this includes a 10-12week guide for session plans and flyers to help advertise the sessions. There will also be support through the Swim England Club Development Officer, and from the Para-swimming talent team, for this project.

Please complete the EoI and return to [email protected] by Tuesday 19th November 2019. We will be in contact with you regarding your completed expression of interest by Tuesday 3rd December 2019.
